you can get away with modules ending in 00.. e.g 5700 (this is a standard unit that can support up to 7mbps aggregate)..
Stay away from P7/P8 boards as those can only do software/1X rate and have poor PPS ratings.
You'll want to run all your gear in 'hardware' mode, and not 'software' mode.
Hope this helps.
1. non-Advantage units will burst to the full 14megs.
2. There is no relation between software scheduling and 1x/2x rate. Apples and oranges. All SM's have the ability to do hardware scheduling.
3. to clarify its hardware scheduling and software scheduling not "mode"
